There was no shooting task arranged in the afternoon. Xi Wei asked the actors of the crew to learn the standard usage of various weapons from Major General Benjamin. They had to learn all of them within a day. The staff were also very busy.
Luo Ning followed Ms. Xue to finish changing the script for the next few days and wandered around when he was bored.
He met Li Xin who was in a hurry in the corridor and learned about Qin Yize’s role being robbed.
He still remembered that day, when he made an appointment with Dao Yu to meet in Lanyue Bay, and how Qin Yize was worried so he went with him. Still after returning home, Li Xin took him to meet the investor. When they came back at night, both of them were in a good mood. It was said that the script of the next drama had been finalized.
Unexpectedly, the contract was cut off halfway before it was signed.
Li Xin sighed and said: “Some investors in the entertainment industry really say one thing on the outside and another on the back. Initially, they said that this drama must be played by Yize, and that Yize was the most suitable male lead in their minds. Then behind our back, they signed a contract with someone else. Sigh… Anyway, in the future, Luo Ning, you also have a good heart, you should remember that only the signed contract can be counted, and what others say, no matter how nice it sounds, can’t be taken seriously.”
Luo Ning thoughtfully questioned: “The role of which Yize was robbed, what is the theme of that drama?”
Li Xin said: “A supernatural adventure story, in fact, the script is not particularly good, it just had a big investment, big production, plus a well-known director and well-known IP adaptation, so it was hyped up.”
Luo Ning thought for a while, and said, “What are you going to do?”
Li Xin rubbed his temples with a headache: “I can’t say anything publicly, after all, the contract was not signed, it was all agreed in private, if I publicly speak ill of the crew, it won’t do Yize’s reputation any good… If this kind of thing happens, you can only consider yourself unlucky.”
Luo Ning patted him on the shoulder with a smile, and said: “Don’t worry, with Yize’s reputation and acting skills, there is no need to worry about not having a good script. Their supernatural adventure drama may not be popular after filming. Since it is inconvenient to say anything, let’s keep silent, the best way is to let Yize act in a more popular drama and slap them in the face.”
Hearing his soft comforting voice, Li Xin felt much better. He nodded and said, “That’s right!”
During the training in the afternoon, all the actors were learning how to handle all kinds of weapons carefully under the guidance of Major General Benjamin himself. After Xi Wei inspected the usage, he was finally satisfied, and asked everyone to go back to eat and they would start filming tomorrow.
Dinner was eaten directly in the cafeteria of the base. Li Xin went to help Qin Yize get food, but when he came back, he found that the atmosphere at the dinner table was not good.
Because Major General Benjamin was actually sitting opposite Qin Yize.
Two tall men in military uniforms sat facing each other, seemingly chatting politely, but from Qin Yize’s tense back, Li Xin immediately judged that Qin Yize hated the other person.
What’s going on? This General Benjamin had a mild temper and personable manner. He also personally instructed Qin Yize to operate various weapons. With Yize’s character, he should be very grateful to him. How could he be on full defense?
Li Xin only knew that Qin Yize and Luo Ning had agreed to marry but did not know that His Majesty once wanted to match Benjamin and Luo Ning. In Qin Yize’s heart, this Benjamin was going to compete with him for Luo Ning’s love and was actually his “rival in love”, how could it be possible for him to put on a good face for the other party?
Finding that the atmosphere was becoming more and more tense, Li Xin had no choice but to bite the bullet and walk over, as he handed the plate full of vegetables to Qin Yize, he turned his head and smiled politely at Major General Benjamin while saying: “The general is also with us. Do you want to eat anything?”
Benjamin looked at him with a smile on his face: “The food at the base is relatively simple, I’m afraid you would not be used to it, so I came to take a look.”
Li Xin waved his hand and said politely: “No, it’s better than the boxed lunches we ate during filming. This is much richer.”
Just then Luo Ning also came over, glanced at Benjamin, and asked naturally: “Can I sit here?”
Benjamin said: “Of course.”
Luo Ning sat down next to him, directly facing Qin Yize, and then he found that Qin Yize’s face was a little stiff.
Li Xin felt uncomfortable all over, so he scratched his head and said, “Well, I’ll get you some drinks.” Then he quickly oiled the soles of his feet and slipped away.
There were only three people left at the dinner table, and the atmosphere became even weirder.
Luo Ning lowered his head to eat on his own, completely ignoring the low air pressure around him.
After a while, Benjamin took the initiative to break the silence, looked at Luo Ning with a smile, and asked in a low voice, “I heard that you are learning screenwriting from Ms. Xue. Do you want to enter the entertainment industry like your uncle?”
Luo Ning showed a blank face as he asked in a low voice: “What do you mean by that, general? Do you know my uncle?”
Benjamin held his forehead helplessly: “Stop pretending, Luo Ning.”
Luo Ning could only smile slightly, and ask, “How did you recognize me?”
Benjamin said: “Although we haven’t met since we grew up, I recognized your necklace at a glance. Cang Luan is inside, right?”
Luo Ning looked back at him in surprise: “Can you recognize Cang Luan?”
Benjamin’s eyes were gentle as he said: “After all, Cang Luan is an intelligent mech from our Behe family. The back of the necklace where it is stored should be engraved with the name ‘Brian Behe’, I guess, is that right?”
Luo Ning nodded with a smile: “That’s right. I remember that you only met Cang Luan a few times, and you can still recognize it. Your memory is really good.”
Benjamin sighed: “You are more mature than when you were a child. Now you love to laugh. I remember that when you were young, you were very mean-spirited, and when you were with Yi Man every day, you jointly bullied your eldest brother.”
Luo Ning coughed lightly, and said, “I don’t even remember.”
Luo Ning’s eyes were very innocent: “I was ignorant when I was a child, and it’s normal to be naughty.”
Benjamin looked at him gently and didn’t speak any more.
At this moment, Li Xin finally came back with a drink. Benjamin looked up at Li Xin, and Li Xin immediately handed the general a glass of juice, saying: “I don’t know your taste, so I just took a glass at random.”
Benjamin smiled slightly: “Thank you.”
Li Xin handed another cup of milk and coffee to Luo Ning and Qin Yize respectively, and then sat down opposite.
Benjamin looked at him and asked: “The accommodation conditions in our base are not as good as those in big hotels. I wonder if you are used to them?”
Li Xin said: “You are too polite, general. I saw it when I went to the room to store my luggage at noon. The arrangements are very good. It’s just…the rooms are all single rooms. When Yize and I go out, we usually live together, which is convenient for discussing things. Can you leave us the double room next door?”
After finishing speaking, he looked at Qin Yize and gave him a glance, as if saying: See how kind I am to you, to help you like this.
Benjamin said: “No problem, I’ll let someone arrange it later and give you the room card of the double room next door.”
Qin Yize, who had been silent all this time, finally opened his mouth and said lightly: “Thank you.”
Benjamin: “You’re welcome, just tell me if you need anything else, and I will ask someone to arrange it for you.”
